Outfit Tips for a Cold Weather Photography Session

Nederland Colorado Family Photography On a Snowy Windy Winter’s Day (with Outfit Tips).

I am excited to share winter outfit tips as exhibited by a super photogenic family!

This family drove to the mountains above Boulder, Colorado all the way from Kansas.  They traveled to Colorado to enjoy a long weekend of skiing and togetherness and creating new memories. I headed to Nederland, Colorado to meet them on what turned out to be a windy day to capture some portraits of their Colorado adventure.

Before I share photographs from our time together, I just want to say this: If you are a mom or dad organizing a photography session, take a look at what these family members are wearing. They look spectacular. Outfit tips are below!

Outfit tips for photography sessions

The family looks so great because:

  • They coordinate super nicely without being too matchy-matchy.
  • The reds. What great pops of color and vibrancy during the winter season.
  • The textures. Pea coats, sweaters, chunky hats, boots with fur trim…this adds some great interest and depth to the images.
  • The ladies took time to do hair and make-up.

Additional Winter Photography Sessions in the Mountains Outside of Boulder

To view other outdoor wintry photo sessions that took place in lovely Nederland, Colorado, check out this Nederland, Colorado engagement photography session or this other Nederland, Colorado e-session. (Do you guys sense a theme with Nederland?! And I didn’t even mention those brisk, crazy strong mountain winds…)

Interested in your own family photography session?

Session fees are $250 (with 10% of that going to a American Whitewater for conservation work that will benefit Colorado rivers). After that, spend an additional $500 on photography prints and products to ensure that your images don’t just live on your computer. Print away and celebrate your family!

hey there!


I've been photographing families professionally since 2006. I am a wife, mama to 2 boys, companion to 2 cats who are named after members of the royal British family, a former preschool teacher. I love running, hiking 14ers, sparkly clothes, the band Phish, river float trips, St. John USVI, farm CSAs, and Colorado blue skies.
